View Full Version : finally got SWT Karaoke! Now what to do?

I got a ball of a lovely green mix with the intention of making a little stockinette cap, but I'm not feeling it. I only got one ball because I just wanted to touch and play with it (LOVE IT, btw), but any ideas what to do with just the 110 yards of Karaoke? Thanks! :)

Did you swatch it yet? Ive heard from Ingrid that it feels much different when you knit with it than it feels on the ball....I would knit a little & see if you feel differently about a hat, which would be GORGEOUS!!

You might get a hat out of it. I can't say for sure if it would be enough. My scarf took three balls. :thinking: 11 inches of sleeve took one ball.

It does certainly knit up soft enough for a hat, though!

i did swatch it and i LOVE it. i was going to make that same old st. st. cap i have made like 5 times already. that pattern calls for one ball of silk garden, which i thought had the same yardage as karaoke, but it has 12 yards more :( i would just knit a cozy for the ipod, but feel like i would be wasting an entirely good ball of yarn. there's a one-ball pattern that the LYS give out with purchase for gauntlets according to SWT site, but i ordered mine via phone and didn't ask for such things. blah!
